The Minnesota Moose proud members of the USPHL are excited to announce the signing of Hayden Ripley a 2000 born defenseman from Scottsdale, Arizona. For the last 2 seasons Ripley has played for the Cleveland Lumberjacks U16 AAA team in the NJPHL. In the 2016-2017 season Ripley was a standout for the Lumberjacks and served as their captain. Hayden posted 6 goals and 28 assists in 55 games. Along with being a standout defenseman on the ice he is also a stand out in the roller rink. Hayden also competes for the Team USA Roller Hockey team for both U16 and U18 during the offseason.
"As we continue to move closer to the season, the more excited we get to announce these top notch players for the Moose inaugural season. Hayden Ripley is a young defenseman, but plays with a ton of poise and confidence when he is on the ice. One attribute that separates him from others is his hands and puck control. We expect Hayden to really become a strong defenseman for the Moose in his first season of junior hockey."
As the Moose finalize their roster over the next week they will be announcing the rest of the teams roster through the end of August, building the excitement for a championship run in their inaugural season.
The Minnesota Moose play out of Fogerty Ice Arena in Blaine, MN. One of the top facilities for Junior Hockey in Minnesota. The Moose home opener at Fogerty Ice Arena will be September 15th vs the Minnesota Mullets out of Forest Lake, MN.
